My quest for the perfect tea kettle

In this quest for the perfect tea kettle I have been rewarded with the discovery of the Simplex Tea Kettle. It is made in England. copper lined with tin. whistling lid and all.... beautiful and shiny. i feel like an ostrich.

baby magic

I just wanted to take time to give a really good piece of parenting advice. No, it doesn't have to do with how often to feed or whether you should spank. Its all about the Symphony in Motion mobile w/remote (at least until they are 5 mos old). this is the most amazing form of baby paraphernalia I can think of when it comes to getting a shower or ready for church undisturbed. It even worked on Bronwynne. the songs are classical composers bach, beethoven, and mozart. its not annoying music. but very soothing. you can get it on ebay. it comes in really bright colors or one like this one so it doesn't clash with nursery decor. the remote allows you to turn it back on from a distance.....b/c you know if they see you... you turn into a pumpkin. so... here it is, my gift to anyone else on here thinking of having a baby, anyone with newborns to 5 or 6 months old..... freedom to shower, do the laundry, cook dinner, be with the husband, do your makeup... (oh the days of spending hours in front of the mirror!), whatever you want to do (in fifteen minute intervals) with the Symphony in Motion Mobile.
